Via our friends at MotorPasionFuturo, we learned the Yamaha eVino is going on sale in Taiwan:

"The Yamaha e-Wine is available by Taiwanese $ 58.500, about 1,500 euros at current exchange rates. No details on whether the brand plans include bringing the model to the west, so will have to wait to see what the future of Yamaha electric 2015."

The specs quoted there are a range of 30 km (18.6 miles) and a top speed of 30 km/h (18.6 mph).

This joins the Yamaha EC-03, released in 2011.  Check out our report from about a year ago on the e-Vino, along with other Yamaha electric bikes.  While we wait to see if it will be available in the world market, let's enjoy some wonderful e-Vino lifestyle footage. Along with lots of happy smiling, we can see this includes a removable battery pack housed in the under-seat storage compartment.

It does, however, appear that it would be able to satisfy our first and most important criteria for a "cargo scooter".
